Overall Satisfaction with Zuora

Zuora has been brought on to be the single source of customer billing (across monthly, annual, credit card and manually invoiced subscribers).
  • Flexible product catalog - allows us to experiment with various pricing and packaging models.
  • Payment gateway agnostic - allowed us to port from our current system, while creating opportunities for alternative payment methods.
  • Multiple currencies - gives us the ability to expand internationally with support for local currencies.
  • API callbacks - allowed us to hook into existing transactional programs (CRM, ESP).
  • API is currently a bit of a mixed bag - between very low level SOAP calls and very high level REST calls. Ton of room for improvement here, including streamlining refund process / closing out unpaid invoices / other use-cased based scenarios (all require many steps.)
  • Learning curve - there's a lot to learn & master, some of which may require changing departmental processes.
  • Documentation is bit of a mixed bag - there's lots out there, but sometimes found in Community, sometimes found in Knowledge Center or the self-paced training materials. Would be great to reduce the time needed to arrive at an answer to a problem.
Previously we had bespoke integrations with Braintree and Stripe directly, but our pricing and packaging needs outgrew their built-in support.
As a SaaS company, the majority of our customers are on evergreen monthly subscriptions. We would love to have seen greater control over hosted payment page fields, values and layouts.
